Ever Fantasized Pursuing Some Weird Hobby?
Well I have. I can't resist a video on growing giant pumpkins. Part of me -- against my better judgement -- urges the pursuit of a really strange hobby... growing GIANT PUMPKINS.
The heaviest pumpkin I am aware of is listed with Guinness as having weighed 2624.6 pounds! An amazing achievement, indeed! Can you imagine devoting your backyard and much of your day, every day for months, to the growth of a single pumpkin, with the goal of its being the largest of its sort at some local fair?
KNOWING that a disease, the weather, some insect, or an animal as small as a mouse, might bring your work down like a house of cards? Or that a deliberate sabotage by a disgruntled neighbor, or even some trouble-making individual without a personal vendetta, might deliberately destroy the work of your hands?
And yet, that is just what I would do if it could fit in with my life's goals. Do you have some hobby you feel the need to squelch?
